I like blade symphony with 10 people or 100 people, there I said it, what are you going to do shoot me?
Aight let me lay down this thick dish of sweet and sour soup for you boys, blade symphony is a 3D fighting game, it means you got a lot more directions than a 2D one.
The game doesn't really mater to be honest, the reason it is fun is because of the players you fight, it's the competitive nature that makes you want to play blade symphony which is the reason why people snap at you, the only reason they play is to win. The game is really well built, its a solid game what can I say, sure the animations could use more work but it is very structurally sound, meaning it's perfect for a fighting game.
Its pretty damn balanced, meaning people will always find different things to ♥♥♥♥♥ about rather than uniteing over something being over-powered. Yeah people will agree that vanguard and longsword is overpowered, but after that it seems like free reign.
So what's my point? Well my point is, if you don't like a hardcore competitive nature in a game, then this is not for you. Hell at first I didn't like blade symphony untill I invested 10 hours into it, then it became like crack cocaine. It is not a game where you can cheese your way to victory over the best players, you have to actually improve at the game meaning that something that works again lesser skilled players doesn't work against the best.
The game has a pretty weird learning curve, I feel like at first it is not steep at all because your like "O boy this oak doesn't know what's comeing with my N1 heavy left and right phalanx play" but after that it is very steep once you realise that playstyle isn't a very viable way to play the game. So listen here buddy boy it gets harder, but I know you can pull through it, just like you pulled through reading this much bull-crap that doesn't matter. After you get over that and you realise that judge is the best charecter obviously and every other one is for shitlords, then you start haveing some real fun and you can dish out your e-peen among skeleton and zeo and watch them strip you bare and cold in the russian winter.
So what is my actual point, well, it's a game for people who want to be competitive in a pretty balanced game. You have to roll with the punches baby boy.
The reason I'm not reviewing the game so much as reviewing you is because this is simply one of the best games I have ever have the pleasure of playing, it is a gem covered in dirt in the middle of a secret ravine full of bipolar neckbeards. There are flaws but they are only apparent when you just start playing, as you play more and more you start to see it as this holy image of a perfect game.
The reason I see it like this is because it is just so damn solid overall, you have different ways of playing different charecters and you can try and make your way work. It is rage enduseing but in the good kind of way I guess. There are different sword types, attack paterns, since it's 3D you have different ways people manuver creating very interesting gameplay.
So to conclude this great speech of nothingness I guess it's up to you if you want to buy this game or not, hell I don't know if you will like it. You can take my word but I'm probably wrong maybe, if you tried this game and didn't like it, come back and give it a second chance please, it truly is a game that the community makes, and even with a small community it still is fun. Buy the game if you havn't right now its 9$, 200 hours is worth that money any day.
tl;dr: Me and zeo are actually secret lovers in a alternate reality
